|Mid chaos, pre painting|
Even the paint lady at Home Depot raised a brow, "Mmhmmm... you gonna put some mirrors on the ceiling too with dem colors? Anonymous and White Fur. Hmph."
So with Anonymous and White Fur on the walls, we decided on a bright orange accent color for the mirror. Inspiration? You mean other than the 'Cuse orange blood that flows brightly through our veins? (I'm not going to apologize for my
college nostalgia/can we please go back? devotion) It was Grandma Florence's weird orange triangle pillow. And with a name like Rumbly Tumbly, choosing an orange was a piece of cake.
The mirror used to be a dark faux wood. Attractive, but starting to peel in the corner. I grabbed the corner and pulled a giant strip off. Easy enough. No turning back now. Turns out that was the only easy edge. Stripping the rest of the wood and adhesive off was a real pain in the ass.
|Stripping this thing was way easier in theory.|
Spent two days with that knife and mirror.
We also hung the chandelier that we made a few years ago, but had not figured out how to hang until now. I went to town with the hammer drill. Timidly and unsuccessfully the first time. Then got a bad ass cement bit, channeled Lara Croft, and blasted my way into the ceiling. Exaggerating? Maybe a little. But I did it. I'm especially proud of our cord covers, a detail that I would usually skip over, but that makes our electrical job look so professional!
|I love cord covers!|

I love our new room :)
